18m. Starts where a vegetated gully separates a pinnacle from the main crag. A well-protected excursion up the middle of the slab, starting from the cave/ recess on the right.

Meant to do Serendipity but strayed left and probably did more of Red Slab. Nice grippy rock. Very cold weather.

Like a few of the routes for this crag. Graded wrong compared to FRCC grades. Clearly HS 4b.
Conan - 2nd - 09/Aug/11 with Clare A, Ian Bradley

A great route.
ceaddiso - 2nd - 09/Aug/11 with Ian Bradley, Conan

A splendid little pitch. Given the excellent gear throughout, it feels much more like a solid Severe than the FRCC's current grading of Hard Severe.
